What is SAL?
Economy Air (SAL) is a service where international mail is handled as surface mail in both Japan and the destination country and as airmail between the two countries. The service is faster than surface mail while the cost is lower than airmail. You may read more here.
It is a popular choice as many overseas collector do not mind waiting while saving the shipping cost.
Personally I wanted to get some toys but what I wanted was SOLD OUT! So too bad. :(
